Kelly cel­e­brates 250 bril­liant A grade games

Euroa Gazette - - SPORTS -

who found their aim by bring­ing the score back to 28-23 at half time.

The rain came in at half time and the dif­fi­cult con­di­tions al­lowed Euroa to slow down the play and to keep ex­tend­ing their lead.

Emily McMa­hon once again proved to be re­li­able as she took in­ter­cepts and backed up her team­mates.

Af­ter a dis­ap­point­ing few weeks, Euroa were pleased to come away with the win.

Best on court: Me­gan Coburn, Emily McMa­hon and Kim Saxon.

EUROA FNC’s Kelly Hill last week­end notched up her 250th GVFNL A Grade game of net­ball when she took the court against the Mans­field Ea­gles.

This mag­nif­i­cent mile­stone ( cel­e­brated with a win to boot) de­mands us all to take time and re­flect – not too many have at­tained such heights.

Kel has been an in­stru­men­tal driv­ing force in the pos­i­tive resur­gence of the net­ball arm of the Euroa Foot­ball Net­ball Club since her ar­rival in 2012.

In the six sea­sons since ( in­clud­ing 2017) Kel has not only been the coach of the A Grade team but is cur­rently co- coach­ing the 17 and un­der side and in 2017 is one of the Ju­nior Vice- Pres­i­dents at the club.

Kel is an ex­cep­tional ath­lete whose ded­i­ca­tion to her fit­ness and her craft in de­fence on the net­ball court is sec­ond to none.

In her time at Euroa FNC Kel has won the A Grade Best and Fairest three times and has never been one of the top few on the other oc­ca­sions.

Kel’s ca­pac­ity to be the pos­i­tive role model that she is, cou­pled with her de­ter­mi­na­tion to make her club the best it can be, means there are never times when she is not able to call upon those around her to do some of the heavy lift­ing – won­der­ful qual­i­ties in a per­son who is ad­mired by so many.

Kel is forever look­ing at ways in which to im­prove things at the Euroa FNC.

Kel is re­spon­si­ble for the con­tent posted on the club’s Face­book page.

For those who are cur­rently ‘ friends’ of the page ( if you are not al­ready then re­quest now) there would be lit­tle dis­agree­ment at the ex­cep­tional way the club is pro­moted.

When all is said and done how­ever, it is the per­son who we know and love that we are mark­ing time in cel­e­brat­ing such a won­der­ful achieve­ment.

Not too many have had the honor of be­ing im­mor­talised with their own face- masks and yes Kel, you are one of them - well done.
